The idea of 2D compositing dates back to the films of George Méliès in the late 19th Century, and is the process of combining elements from a variety of sources, into a single image Of course, a lot has changed since then. Blue/Green screen, head replacement and even twinning are now possible. But this technology can also be used to retouch and repair images. Making the sky more beautiful, or even adding smoke and fire. Extending sets past their physical sizes is also common practice. This really is the cornerstone of Visual Effects.
